IE Explorer Pop Ups

By nightfly1313 ·
I have Windows XP running on my home PC and without IE Explorer running I get several pop up windows. I know Explorer is intergrated in the OS, but does anyone have any ideas?

This is from people spamming your messenger port. Close the port, disable the service, or get a good firewall. Or do all of them, like I do. :)
